League Men’s Mid Season Captain’s Report

Austral Volleyball Club’s League Men have enjoyed an excellent start to the season winning four of their first six games. Coming into their bye round the league men were second on the ladder; however, after the bye they have moved to fifth place, highlighting how tight the competition is this year. Under the guidance of new head coach Peter Bawhey, the league men are enjoying playing and training with a team first attitude. Peter has made squad bonding an integral part of the training program, particularly in preseason, to ensure that there is a positive, hard working culture across all teams.

The league men are playing an exciting brand of volleyball after the inclusion of some new faces into the team, in particular the 2014 South Adelaide Volleyball Club MVP and University of South Australia Athlete of the year Elliot King. He, Lewis McDonald and Rhys Wood have all brought a new level of skill and leadership to the team after all debuting for the Adelaide Storm in last year’s Australian Volleyball League. Thomas Rogers has also been influential in his role as libero since his promotion to the league team.

Exciting wins over USC Lion and the Norwood Bears, as well as convincing wins over the Northern Knights and South Adelaide has highlighted the league men’s dominance when at their best. If they can continue their improvement and good form the team is likely to not only make the finals but also have a serious impact on them.
